Just a reminder ~ About Fruit Flies

I posted this originally, two years ago, but wanted to mention it again for those who might not have read it. Where we live, the Fruit Flies are beginning to come into full force in my kitchen.

Do any of you have that problem? Between the compost bucket and the produce sitting around waiting to be processed, the pesky critters multiply with glee. Here is a simple, and effective, solution:

Take a shallow dish and add just a little apple cider vinegar and 1 drop of dish washing detergent. Set it on the counter near where they seem to like to hang out. Voila! They like the smell of the vinegar, and the detergent breaks the surface tension so they drown.

Sad, but necessary.
